New Delhi: Jacqueline Fernandez was summoned by Delhi Police on Wednesday in connection with Sukesh Chandrashekhar’s 200 crore extortion case. She appeared before Delhi Police’s Economic Offences Wing at around 11.30 am. The actress was questioned for about 8 hours by the Delhi Police before she went home.
According to the latest reports, she has not been summoned for the second round of questioning. The officials will further decide after a closed meeting among themselves.
Jacqueline Fernandez was questioned by EOW for about eight and a half hours today. The actress has not been called for questioning again tomorrow. Senior officers will discuss Jacqueline’s answers amongst themselves from today’s session.
The actress was actually about to appear before Delhi Police on September 12. But due to her prior commitments, she appealed to postpone the questioning session to September 14.
Last month, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed a charge sheet against the actress naming her as an accused in the scam.
For the unversed, Chandrashekhar is an accused in the 200-crore extortion racket. He executed it from jail by bribing jail officials in crores. The ED stated that he used a wide network to launder money. He’d use it to buy movable and immovable properties.
A few months back, the ED attached assets belonging to the actor and also questioned her. The agency in April provisionally attached ₹ 7 crore assets of the actor under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
According to media reports, Jacqueline Fernandez initially did not respond to messages sent to her by conman Sukesh Chandrasekhar. Later, he approached the actress through her hairdresser.
